The Shiv Sena has denied that it has offered a reward of Rs 10 lakh to anyone chopping the hands of painter M F Husain for a distorted depiction of Hindu deities. Senior Sena leader and MLA Subhash Desai said a Sena leader in Delhi had reportedly made a statement which has resulted in a controversy "We have asked him to issue a clarification. The Sena does not approve of such acts," Desai asserted.

The Sena and VHP have been campaigning against Husain for the past few weeks. VHP's national joint secretary Vyankatesh Abdev said, "While the police promptly arrest anyone accused of insulting other religions, it remains quiet when the VHP complains of anyone insulting Hindu gods and goddesses." He said the police were under pressure from politicians who practised vote-bank Politics.
